What's New in Saratoga
There will be sunny skies this first weekend of fall and plenty of fun things to do! From much anticipated early fall festivities and shows, like the Antique Truck Show at the Saratoga County Fairgrounds and the Adirondack Balloon Festival in nearby Glens Falls, to family scavenger hunts, fundraisers and more, there are plenty of ways to spend a fun fall weekend in and near Saratoga!

Parking issues in Saratoga have been a hot topic of discussion for quite some time. A multi-level parking garage was in the works on High Rock Avenue, but the plan was halted earlier this year because of two lawsuits, which are still ongoing. 

Last month, Saratoga began discussing paid parking options, in addition to shuttles, efficiency studies, and any other possible resources.

The discussion is now in full swing again, as a prominent area company looks into merging two of its offices to one Saratoga location. The city is investigating the possibility of a parking deck to accommodate hundreds of new employees to Saratoga, and the site has been approved.

It's been quite some time since Saratoga Springs has seen a distillery - since Prohibition, in fact. Now, a former bike factory in Saratoga has been turned into a distillery, and it's open for you to check out.

Since his America's Got Talent audition, local Saratoga magician Steven Brundage has dazzled viewers with a wide array of fascinating Rubik's Cube tricks. Despite being a fan favorite Wild Card contestant, Brundage was eliminated from the competition yesterday and won't advance to the finals.
